Folklore Characters
Posted On: 2019-04-15

PERSONNEL: 5 Cubs and 2 Den Leaders

EQUIPMENT: Costumes for Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed, Pecos Bill, Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Charlie Parkhurst, and Molly Brown

CUB 1: I'm Paul Bunyan, the lumberman who leveled a forest in one swing of my ax. My constant companion was Babe the Blue Ox.

CUB 2: I'm Johnny Appleseed, a missionary who planted orchards in the wilderness. My friends were settlers and Indians alike.

CUB 3: I'm Pecos Bill, I was raised by the coyotes. I fought a ten-foot rattlesnake, tamed it and used it for a whip.

CUB 4: I'm Daniel Boone, hunter and trail maker who led settlers over the Allegheny Mountains into Kentucky.

CUB 5: I'm Davy Crockett, backwoods hero, member of Congress, and one of the defenders of the Alamo.

LEADER 1: I'm Charlie Parkhurst, a stagecoach driver before there were railroads. I'm unusual because I'm a lady.

LEADER 2: I'm Molly Brown, I lived in Leadville, Colorado. Denver society never accepted me, but I was on the Titanic when it went down in 1912 and helped save the survivors.

ALL: We are folklore characters. But you can see, we all had adventure and as much fun as can be!

Goodnight!
